Spectrum Regulations

Posted by LA Thornton on Tuesday, April 12, 2011
ICASA has finally replaced the old Radio Regulations made prior to the Telecommunications Act, with the Radio Frequency Spectrum Regulations published on 31 March 2011.  The Regulations set out application procedures (standard and extended) and forms and application fees.  They also incorporate the spectrum licence exemption regulations and set out special provisions for services such as amateur radio, communal repeaters, burlar alarms, and citizen band services.  It would appear that these "services" are exempt from the service licence procedures, although not explicit.
The Regulations set out procedure for initiating the withdrawal of licences where the licences have not been used for a period of two years, procedures for the co-ordination of shared fequencies and for the transfer of spectrum licences.
